Who prays?


The Pew Research Center has posted a demographic breakdown of who prays at least once a day. The information is from a 2007 survey, but the results are interesting.

Among the findings:

  • Evangelicals are slightly more likely to pray once a day than Muslims, but less likely to pray than Mormons. On the whole, Evangelicals seemed more likely to pray than most groups.
  • The more money you make, the less likely you are to pray daily.
  • The older you are, the more likely you are to pray regularly.
  • Women are more likely to pray daily than men.

What do you make of the data, particularly the last two bullet points?
